Coming into its prime.... Open, decant and wait 15-20 for a wonderfully balanced wine. Great texture, nice fruit, well balanced. this once $35 bottle of wine will outshine those at now twice its price.
Still is a bit strung out and needs a little more time. Out of the bottle its tight and needs 30-45 minutes to open up. It reminds me of a Baby Insignia. Not as sweet and lush, rather a little tighter wound and more tannins. It is darker fruit and more earthy in style than Insignia. What a great purchase back in the day.
Popped and poured. Drank over 4 hours. Ripe and lush with lots of dark currents, chocolate and some plum showing. Getting a bit flabby with the tannins and acidity diminishing. Not significantly complex hence the sub 90 rating. I did expect more from this one.
Great choice for watching The Advengers in 3D at home... Fun movie, fun wine...is starting to show a little age, not in a negative way...yet. Dark fruit, stone sour fruit, a little prune, dark cacao, eucalyptus...
